CULTURAL COURSES

In addition to offering Presentation Skills coaching and courses, Boldt Global offers three Cultural Courses that enable managers to better navigate the world of international business. We take our basic content on one of three topics and customize it to meet your specific needs. Weather you are facing challenges related to productivity of your global teams, general issues of global management competency or need to prepare a team to negotiate with people from another culture, we can help!

Thriving in Multicultural/Virtual teams

Thanks to technology, your global team can come together at the click of a button, but that doesn’t mean your team members are all on the same page. Cultural differences affect the way team members think, act and communicate. For the team to function effectively, it’s critical to understand and manage these differences.

 

This workshop is designed for global managers of remote teams who need to maximize their team’s results. Face-to-face interventions are combined with virtual training techniques to equip you to:

  • Analyze and understand the differences among team members
    Create and build your team and monitor and evaluate team performance
  • Manage both the task (the what) and the team process (the how)
  • Bridge the cultural gaps and capitalize on the differences to maximize productivity and creativity
  • Engender and maintain trust by managing conflict within the team

Developing Cultural Competency

This workshop is designed for managers who work in a global business environment and need to improve their ability to collaborate with their colleagues from across the globe in order to get solid business results.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify what is cultural about your own attitudes and behaviors and how cultural conditioning impacts your way of working
  • Understand how cultural differences express themselves in people’s thinking and working habits
  • Build and maintain functional and productive cross-border work relationships
  • Minimize misunderstanding and conflict and learn strategies to deal with conflicts that do arise
  • Practice intercultural empathy to increase your ability to interact authentically
  • Accomplish your key business goals as part of a multicultural team

International Negotiation

Negotiating with other organizations is challenging enough, but negotiating with companies from other countries and cultures can be downright daunting. You need a keen awareness of cultural differences and an ability to manage your behavior in order to get the most out of your cross-border negotiations. This workshop will give you the key skills you need to negotiate anywhere the world.

After completing this workshop you will:

  • Understand how negotiation is defined and perceived by different cultures
  • Have the insight needed to create strategies for successfully dealing with partners from other cultures
  • Be able to enact tactics from both Win/Win and Win/Lose negotiation strategies
  • Be able to identify when and how to modify your behavior to gain the best possible negotiating outcome

*This workshop is open to small, even-numbered groups of 6 to 20 people.
